Henry was sitting on the rooftop of some pharmaceutical company, contemplating his impending marriage. He still couldn't believe she said yes and that she already knew about him. It was like a fairytale, it seemed so perfect. "HELP!!!" He stole my purse!! MUGGER!!!" came the screams of a distressed citizen. The sun had barely risen and the criminals day had already begun. Henry sat up and watched the mugger run into an alleyway. "You know it's terrible when people lose their purses isn't it?"
"Whoa man! What's your deal!?!?"
"Come on, things will go a lot easier for you if you just give it up. You know you gave that woman a heck of a fright" "Huh, yeah? What do I care?"
"Well it's the difference between a simple mistake and a felony carrying prison time"
The criminal thought about it for a moment. Henry watched him, he looked like he was about to bolt. Quickly he turned and ran for it, chucking the purse behind him. They always run, Henry thought. He picked up the purse and took it back to the woman. "Oh my goodness thank-you! I had all my money and passport in there, I have no idea what I would have done if you hadn't have come along. I mean I would have just died!" she said as she kissed him on the cheek and smiled. "Ahh..well it was no trouble at all. Always happy to help" he laughed nervously. "All in a day's work. You be safe now" and with that he flew off into the sky. Henry was doing his daily patrol of the town but it was turning out to be a slow day. He enjoyed slow days, because it meant all was well. His mobile started to ring. It was his mum. "Hey Henry, I found the information on your father you asked me for yesterday. I've got his address"
"Okay, I'll come round now"
"Seeya soon"
"Hey sleepy head" Dan smiled as Jacque opened her eyes. "You know what today is?"
"Today isn't today yet" she said sleepily "It's only 7 o'clock, I thought we were planning for this afternoon, meaning sleeping in"
"Ha! You're going to have to get used to sleepless night soon, before the baby arrives. Have you thought of any names?"
"I liked the name Taylor." Jacque smiled.
"For a boy?"
"For both"
"Taylor.." Dan thought about it "I like it"
"Really? I thought there was going to be a bigger debate on her name"
"Her name?" Dan asked.
"Well she's going to be a girl, I can just feel it"
"Well I can sense Taylor's going to be a boy." He smiled.
Jacque moved closer and kissed Dan lightly "Guess we'll have to wait and see" "Hey mum, I'm home" Henry yelled out as he walked through the front door.
"Henry! There you are, just wait a second I wrote it down" she said as she took off into another room.
"124 Riverdale Road, Pleasantview"
"That's where he lives?" Henry asked.
"That's where he lives, I'm 100% sure" she smiled "you know you don't have to see him if you don't want to"
"Well I kind of want my father to be at my wedding" Henry beamed. "WHAT!?!?!?!?!" She screamed. How loud she screamed. "You're engaged!?!?!?! She said yes!?!?!?!?" She went into a fit of hysteria and tears, as well as death grip hugs. "I asked her last night, after I told her everything" Henry smiled.
"Oh my boy!" she smiled pinching his cheeks. "You two will have to come over for dinner! A celebratory dinner!" she beamed.
"We'll organize something for next week? Sorry to leave so quickly but I still have to get home and I wanted to visit my father today and if he lives in Pleasantview I'm going to have to leave soon" "Oh don't worry about it, next week sounds fine. Good luck with Hugh."
"Thanks mum"
"Jacque? Are you alright?" came Dan's concerned voice. Jacque came out of the bathroom with a sickly look on her face.
"Yeah...I'm fine, it just hasn't been the most pleasant morning"
"We should start getting everything ready now, the van's parked around the back"
"Hey you're here!" Henry beamed as he walked in the door. "Yeah, come and have a look at this" Jane replied from the couch. Henry walked over and kissed her head whilst looking at the screen.
"Captain Hero strikes again" she smiled.
"We have an eye witness report and footage of the mysterious Captain Hero, over to you Cindy Mathews" "Thank-you Jen. That's right we have Andrea Watson here and she says Captain Hero returned her purse of all things-" It cut to the footage as the reporter kept talking
"-And she even managed to steal a kiss as our cameras caught earlier today"
Henry went bright red. "It didn't mean anything. I don't like her. She kissed me I didn't kiss her" he shot off three different excuses as fast as he could. "Woah, where did that come from?" Jane asked. "Isn't that what you meant? The kiss?" "No" she laughed " I was showing you the numerous news reports that have been going non-stop since they finally caught you on camera. I couldn't care less about the kiss, I trust you, you know that" "Yeah. Sorry but I have to be heading out soon, I just came home to change"
"Where are you going?" Jane asked.
"I have my father's address, I'm going to see him."

good to have them back! Great chapter!

I like this chapter as well but there has been a long time between this one and the previous. I had to go back to read the last chapter before jumping into this one. Wouldn't it be a good idea to write a short memory on a previous chapter? I say... it's not necessary if you upload every 2 weeks but after 3 or 4 months.... people forget about your story. That would be a pity because it's a good one. \:D ~ Margo.

Whhaaat?! How dare you not have him go to the house in this chapter? I was totally expecting it. =D Anyway, good work once again. I hope that Jacque is okay. On another note, if she and Dan are both sensing different genders, maybe they've got twins themselves. They might have to name the kids Taylor and Taylor, wouldn't that be funny? XD
